DLC Round-Up: February 2017

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Welcome to the Rocksmith DLC Round-Up!

Before we get to February let’s see how you voted for last month!

 

Looks like the lads from @U2 came out on top, pop-punk is still well loved, and the 60s will never die! Variety will always have a place in our hearts, and don’t feel too bad Amy Lee…


 

This month kicked off with another dose of the 80s c/o Kenny Loggins, Twisted Sister, and Simple Minds, then we got the highly popular and oddly tuned @Coldplay six pack, we kicked it with The @BeastieBoys, and finally we got our eighth pack of Variety with artists like Candlebox, Kasabian, Tears for Fears, and another track from Steppenwolf!


 

Bassists had a little fun this month with tracks like Footloose (Kenny Loggins), Sabotage (Beastie BoysMagic Carpet Ride (Steppenwolf), Underdog (Kasabian), and Yellow (Coldplay) I guess…

This bass line is so lethal it even tires @Audrey123talks out a fair bit

An iconic bass line finally in Rocksmith!

I guess they call it Acid Rock for a reason. Good luck with that section!

This crunchy electrosynth drenched bass line is a welcome addition to the catalog

Coldplay’s bass lines aren’t intricate or overly challenging, but as @DanAmrich says, they serve the song.


There were definitely a few fun guitar arrangements this month, let’s check out a couple!

There’s a lot going on here…

Come for the approachable riff and stay for the monster solo!

This is just really enjoyable to play

Get bendy!

Pfft this song is easy, wait a second… What is Kerry King doing here, ok it’s Slayer now…

Kenny Powers approves of this Seattle 90s hit

Even with the pitch shift/fadeout it’s still pretty awesome. More guitar than you thought!

Sleeper hit of the Variety Pack imo. So much fuzz gain.


February’s tunings were complicated thanks to a Coldplay six pack, they really like to tune things up a bit… Weird.
